TASTING NOTES

Brisk and complex leading with passion fruit, pineapple, plum, and red pear. It's delicate on the nose which rewards tasters with up-front flavors on the palate that are balanced nicely with bright lemon acidity.


VINEYARD NOTES

The grapes mostly come from vineyards on Seneca Lake where the slightly warmer mesoclimate ripens this variety well. Our Seneca vineyard is located in Hector, New York, in the warmest mesoclimate in the Finger Lakes known as the ‘Banana Belt’. Temperatures here are a few degrees warmer than Keuka thus providing riper fruit notes. Soils on Seneca are characterized by deep honeoye silt loam.


WINEMAKER NOTES

“We began 2021 with a milder winter resulting in fewer buds damaged from the cold. This produced a larger grape crop which is allowing us to get back in stock on many of our wines. The growing season in 2021 was more typical for the region with cooler temperatures and adequate rainfall. The wines from this vintage will have crisp acidity balanced by delicate fruit flavors providing great structure. The Reds and Whites should age well as evidenced by our wine library going back to the 1962 vintage.”
-Frederick Frank
